Grapefruit essential oil lifts the spirits, helps dispel negative thoughts, assists in overcoming addictions, reduces stress, and it works remarkably well as an anti-depressant. Vigorously rub the soap over the area of skin to be shaved until you create a good shaving lather and the ingredients absorb into the skin, and then begin shaving. 

Wet shaving that involves the use of a safety razor is one of the oldest methods of removing unwanted hair (from any part of the body). 

Today's market offers a variety of shaving creams and foams both for men and women. These creams and foams look attractive, they are agreeable to the skin, and some of them even smell nice. However they can contain not so agreeable ingredients, such as: water, palmitic acid, triethanolamine, laureth-23, isobutane, aloe barbadensis, paraffin wax, stearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, cetyl dimethicone copolyol, propane, lauramide DEA, perfume, PEG-150 distearate, BHT, imidazolidinyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, quaternium-15. This ingredients list is taken from a typical shaving product. 

Triethanolamine (TEA) and lauramide DEA are detergents/surfactants, that can cause skin irritation. Even more worrying is their mixing with PEG compounds that can release formaldehyde (scroll down for further information), which then may catalyze the formation of carcinogenic nitrosamine. 

PEG-150 distearate. PEG compounds are derived from polyethylene glycol. They are used as stabilizers, humectants and emollients. The lower the PEG number the more liquid the product. PEG compounds oxidize easily in contact with air and can then form formaldehyde, so they mustn't be used in products that contain DEA, MEA or TEA. Depending on manufacturing processes, PEG compounds may be contaminated with the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane. Humectants absorb water from the environment, but under conditions of low humidity, they also draw water from the deeper layers of the skin. This is why appling products that contain PEG compounds to the skin can actually leave the skin dryer. 

BHT and imidazolidinyl urea are preservatives. BHT, or butylated hydroxytoluene, is a synthetic antioxidant that can cause allergic reactions and increased sensitivity. Imidazolidinyl urea is, aside from parabens, the most widely used preservative. It can release formaldehyde into a product and it is most dangerous when used together with ethanolamines (DEA, MEA, TEA). 

Parabens or para-hydroxybenzoic acid esters are also synthetic preservatives. They are easily absorbed and can cause skin irritation. They also have the ability to partially mimic estrogen.

The estrogenic activity of parabens increases with the length of the alkyl group. Ranged from the strongest estrogenic activity to the weakest, parabens include following compounds: butylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben, methylparaben. 

Quaternium-15 is a preservative and an allergen that can irritate the skin. It's a chemical that can release formaldehyde and nitrosamines when used with DEA and TEA compounds. 

Paraffin wax is liquid paraffin, a by-product of the petroleum refining process. It is used as a lubricant in shaving creams. Liquid paraffin can cause skin irritation, and there is evidence that it might be carcinogenic and increase skin photosensitivity. Isobutane and propane are propellants. They are neurotoxic (they cause damage to the central nervous system) in high concentrations. They also contribute to the phenomenon of global warming. 

Stearyl alcohol is often used as a lubricant to help products adhere better to the skin. It appears to be nontoxic, however it can cause mild skin irritation. 

Palmitic acid is a fatty acid that is used as a surfactant. It is also added to products to soften the skin. Cetyl dimethicone copolyol is a silicone derivative that is used for skin regeneration and protection. It is considered nontoxic. 

Laureth-23. Laureth compounds are emulsifiers. Laureth-23 may contain the carcinogen 1,4-dioxane. 

Aloe barbadensis. Aloe extracts are added to make your skin smooth. Many shaving foams contain herbal extracts. In general, they are nontoxic, however they can cause allergic reactions and increased sensitivity in some people. The manufacturer of our exemplary shaving product didn't put perfume on the ingredient list, even though it has a strong smell. Most shaving creams contain perfume, and some even unnecessary colour additives, that only make the product more toxic. 

IMPORTANT !!!!! Wet shaving should be exactly that – wet. And, if you thoroughly wet the unwanted hairs before shaving, you will use less cream or foam. Modern shaving creams are full of lubricants because most men and women tend to avoid one essential step, which is wetting their skin first. Also: use shaving soap to avoid problems related to solvents and propellants, that is, unless you suffer from very dry skin. The shaving brush may irritate dry skin so before applying foam to your face use it to soap up your hands first.
